2020-11-15 – Truths with Teeth

it’s nice when truth
is also kind..

of nice to
hear,

but truth has its
way of burrowing
deep within
the ear

where it nestles in
to buzz-pop and
crackle snap,
until..

mind’s lost
to attack.

2020-11-04 – Worry’s Death

i put my dear
worry to
bed,

tucked him in
up past the
eyelids,

then lovingly
pressed

a pillow over
his face,
as he

bucks
and battles

to ration his
breaths..

just in case
this is
it..

my poor old
worry’s
death.

20-10-13 – Shadow’s Cut

scrub at skin ’til
it’s shreds,

slip a yawn
at strike
of

midnight,

your nightengale
plumes cut
quite the

shadows in luna’s
jealous, bitter
light, so..

++++

..sharp it
takes bites.

2020-10-05 – The Inside Cage

concerns rest calmer
in light of moon

seems she casts quite
the seductive
somber
too,

that pale hue that
paints the heart of
any room,

crisp page feels cool to
spite lampshade’s
tempered
rage.

and i’d have held
her hand were it
not for sweat
and fright
from..

the inside
cage.

2020-09-17 – Too Latte

nutmeg nibbling
at nervous
nose,

spicy soft with a
mellow waft
of steam,

itchy cheeks,
sweaty creaks
sunk in
seat,

10 slow ticks past
confirmed time
of meet,

++++

ohh..

right shop
wrong street.
